Statement on IPAB Repeal: Protecting Access to Healthcare Act

Statement on IPAB Repeal: Protecting Access to Healthcare Act
Print Friendly

Today, the House of Representatives has passed the Protecting Access to Healthcare bill, which is the repeal of the Independent Advisory Board (IPAB). Concerned Women for America (CWA), applauds the repeal of this board which would consist of 15 faceless bureaucrats that would decide the fate of our healthcare needs and care. Penny Nance, CWA’s Chief Executive Officer and President, had this to say:

ObamaCare was signed into law in 2010, and its ramifications are astronomical, with IPAB being one of the most contentious portions of the health care law. Although the reasoning behind IPAB was to keep Medicare spending down, the facts show that it will ignore the essential problems associated with Medicare and lower costs by rationing treatment to seniors.

As a result, unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats will decide what treatments our elderly parents receive. No longer will we be able to make decisions in conjunction with medical professionals about our parents’ needs; these decisions will be decided by reimbursement rates set by an inauspicious board.

CWA views this as a small victory on the long road to stopping this egregious health care law that tramples economic freedom and religious liberties. We will continue to shed light on the wrongheaded health care law until it is fully dismantled.
